Abstract:

The first section of the book is devoted to a curriculum in which "active learners grew into lifelong readers because they were given real choices, time to read, and supportive feedback", The second section focuses on free expression in student publications. The third section takes a broader view of issues related to selection policies and what they mean to teachers and school boards and the ramification of stepping out of bounds for the sake of students and their right to free expression. Includes an "Intellectual Freedom Manifesto" with "The Right to Read," "The Right to Write," "The Right to Create," "The Right to Teach and Learn," and "The Right to Communicate in the Digital Age."
